The Bible is full of words which don't really work hard enough. Nigel Bayley has provided outrageous but hilarious definitions, describing situations that were just waiting to be brought into the light: Junia (n.) The intelligent young volunteer who is inadvertently outwitting you and thereby gently ruining your poorly thought out children's talk. Hittite (n.) One towards whom your immediate and overwhelming pastoral instinct is to punch them really hard in the face. Shamsherai (n.) The vocal mayhem caused by songwriters who think it would be pleasing and authentic to have a line in Hebrew. The finest antidote to boring sermons and the best possible reading for the smallest room. This book will make a splendid gift for the less reverent members of the congregation.

About the Author

Nigel is one of the pastors of Lymington Baptist Church, Hampshire. He also lectures and tutors part-time at Moorlands College, Dorset, and writes and performs stand-up comedy.

Reviews

"I get asked to review a lot of humour books these days, and I'm usually left embarrassed trying to find something positive to say. This is not the case with this book. It's brilliant. The effort and wit that Nigel has put into it are evident from the first page, and you're never far away from a nice chuckle. I'm not usually a harhur, but I thoroughly commend and recommend this excellent book." -- Andy Kind, comedy writer "If you've ever wondered whether it is possible to make the Bible mean what it never meant... wonder no more! But if you invest some 'minniths', you'll discover things about 'heman' that may have more to do with 'caesar' than your getting the 'gaash' treatment (now you'll need to buy the book!). "And if you die laughing, they'll give you your money back (upon personal application!)" -- Steve Brady, Principal, Moorlands College "Nigel Bayley makes me laugh and if you read this book you'll see why. "When we laugh our defences come down and we can learn... which may make this a learning book as well as a laughing one." -- Ian Coffey, author and speaker "This book is wonderfully irreverent, uncomfortably hilarious and joyfully provocative. Read it. Laugh out loud. And think before you speak from now on..." -- Matt Summerfield, Executive Director, Urban Saints
